Tweet claims that Rahul Gandhi sympathises with the murderers of Kanhaiya Lal
Through the viral tweet the claim was made that Rahul Gandhi asked to forgive the murderers of Kanhaiya Lal as they lost the track. The caption further said, ” What a shameless man who openly promoting jihad & sympathising with terrorists !”
On our investigation we found a previous fact check done by our team on the same issue. Our fact check published on 2 July 2022 proved how a video where Rahul Gandhi said, that people who vandalised his office in Wayanad got lost and should be forgived, was used to mislead people. In our factcheck we proved how the quotes of Rahul Gandhi from that interview available on YouTube, were used in context of Kanhaiya Lal murder case.
It’s clear from our fact check on the Kanhaiya Lal murder that the claim made in the viral tweet by @MajorPoonia claiming Rahul Gandhi sympathising with the murderers of Kanhaiya Lal is misleading and false.
